From the designer: After many years of hard work and study I seem to be living the dream at the moment. From childhood I have always been fascinated by nature and this has become the main feature of my art. I am never short of inspiration as work and hobbies have just become one and the same. Having been successful in breeding many rare birds I now get invited to give presentations as far afield as Africa and Australia where I am able to explore nature with the world's experts. I visit so many amazing places I often have to pinch myself. Bursting with inspiration I return home to paint my images.
